I'm running Ubuntu 13.04 on a CLEVO P151EMx, it has a built-in Realtek PCIE Cardreader 5289, which works fine in Windows, but refuses to show up in Ubuntu.

I can't see any sd cards I put in it in /dev, and lspci shows it as follows:

03:00.0 Unassigned class [ff00]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device 5289 (rev 01)

I've tried the fix here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/udisks/+bug/971876. But no luck.

Any suggestions?

P.S. I'm trying to format a microSDHC card using fdisk for use in a BeagleBone Black, if that helps.

Someone asked for the output of lspci -v -s 03:00.0:

 03:00.0 Unassigned class [ff00]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device 5289 (rev 01)
 Subsystem: CLEVO/KAPOK Computer Device 5105<br>
 Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 43<br>
 Memory at f7a00000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]<br>
 Capabilities: access denied <br>
 Kernel driver in use: rtsx_pci

The relevant entries in dmesg -T are:

[Tue May 21 15:19:36 2013] mmc0: error -110 whilst initialising SD card
[Tue May 21 15:19:37 2013] mmc0: error -110 whilst initialising SD card

I know this dosen't help, but I've had the same problems on numerous netbooks/laptops. The problem is that it dosen't show up as a standard ide device, so drivers must be written for specific implementations. I just ended up giving up and buying a $2 sd card reader from amazon. –  Scott Goodgame May 21 '13 at 19:37
    
I have Clevo W110ER with the same card reader. I needed this rts-bpp driver in Ubuntu 12.10 but in 13.04 it works out of the box. The driver in use is rtsx_pci. Show your lspci -v -s 03:00.0. –  Grzegorz Żur May 21 '13 at 19:38
    
Thanks @ScottGoodgame, I'll probably end up buying one, this is getting really frustrating. –  NuclearEagleFox May 21 '13 at 19:40
    
Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! The best way to add additional information to your question is by editing it, with the edit button.

@guntbert Uh..thanks? I figured since it was more relevant to the comments, I would put it here, but it's been added to the post anyway. –  NuclearEagleFox May 21 '13 at 20:11

I tested ubuntu 13.10 on clevo w310CZ, with similar realtek's chipset (no 5289 but 5286) sd card no mount too

and no one kernel module load

$ sudo lspci -v -s 03:00.0  
03:00.0 Unassigned class [ff00]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device 5286 (rev 01)  Subsystem: CLEVO/KAPOK Computer Device 3110  
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 11  
Memory at f7400000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]
Capabilities: [40] Power Management version 3
Capabilities: [50] MSI: Enable- Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit+

I've tried the fix here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/udisks/+bug/971876.

worked on ubuntu 12.04 but doesn't on 13.10

I posted a new bug here https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/udisks/+bug/1250605
